More Than Cards


Hi! I'm Tabitha, the gal behind North Star Muse.

I believe we all have inner navigation. We are at our finest when we trust ourselves.

While we have a certain level of freedom of choice, our true purpose is somewhat fixed, like the North Star.

Tarot, tea leaf readings, and creative activities help navigate our potential.


Tabitha Dial is a tarot, tea leaf reader, and creative mentor in Lexington, Kentucky. She organizes the Create your Fate (Tarot and more) Meetup and teaches seminars at the Mystical Paranormal Fair once a month. Her poetry has appeared in articles on, in "Arcana: The Tarot Poetry Anthology", and in "Tarot in Culture" Volume Two.

In other words: My early muses and I remain close: writing and tarot.

As a child, I spent hours in my parents' backyard, composing short stories.

I discovered tarot while a teenager. The art drew me in to tarot, and I rediscovered it when I entered school for a masters in poetry. Our thesis was a book-length collection of poetry. I sought a theme.

Tarot, and my love of poetry, communication, and creativity, have connected me to various people and publications, like Erik C. Dunne, the creator of the Tarot Illuminati, the Denver Tarot Meetup, Tarot expert and book author Mary K. Greer, enthusiastic first-time tarot clients, Magpie Oracle creator Carrie Paris, Christiana Gaudet, and other poets and the editor of Arcana: The Tarot Poetry Anthology.


Myths! Characters! Landscapes of universal and personal symbols nourish me each time I turn to tarot, tea leaf readings, and creative activities.

I began to read tea leaves because of my grandmother.

Legend has it that she learned geomancy (reading patterns in nature) from her Cherokee grandmother. 

I fondly recall my grandmother reading the leaves at the bottom of Chinese tea pots at a favorite local restaurant. She did it only a few times, and in a spirit of playfulness that I like to use in my own readings.

These are some of the art journaling and vision board creations I have made.

I value creativity.

We build our realities with our thoughts.

Using art affirmation journals, or collage and visual board work, our thoughts can evolve with layers of meaning.

Our visions for ourselves should be limitless, and I believe each of us can access our core self through creative activities, like writing, visual art, music and drumming, dance, and more.

Sharing creative ideas with others is one of the most fulfilling things I do at North Star Muse.
